    3 way valves

    Hi, can anyone recommend an online store to purchase a 3 way valve? Any particular brands to avoid or any recommended brands? Thanks in advance.

    Rainman - I don't shop on- line so can't help you with the 'where'.

    I can tell you that Jandy neverlube valves are good valves and that if anyone offers you a Hayward SP 733 - RUN, don't walk!!

    I hope you can find a good valve at a good price that will perform well for your needs and your pool!

    Re: 3 way valves

    I bought all my valves from poolcenter.com

    http://www.poolcenter.com/plumbing_valves_poolstor.htm

    It was the best pricing I could find. No problems with the site or the valves. I used Jandy 3 way valves and check valves on the pad. I used the Pac Fab/ComPool 2 way valves instead of ball valves on returns and suction pipes. For an extra $10 per valve over a high quality ball valve I thought it was worth it. I was very impressed with these valves. If I had seen them in person before ordering I may have also used them instead of Jandy for my 3 way valve applications. However, I don't have any experience so I went conservative; Jandy has a great reputation so I paid the extra 100% to use Jandy everywhere I needed a 3 way valve.
